Renovations of the Strathcona gym just began Monday August 11th with a big celebration planned for October 11th. The swoosh and stealth of gymnasium floor resurfacing and repairs, as well as a refresh of gym walls and score clocks was made possible by community connection, support and endorsement of our Strathcona basketball and youth programs.

NBA representatives: Chris, in the yellow coveted "I Love Strathcona" t-shirt and Jonathan, who is proudly displaying the shirt are our NBA go-to guys as the project commences!
Very exciting community news! And remember... mark October 11th in your calendar for the fun and grand unveiling!
Special thanks to Mike Evans & Mitra Tshan of Britannia High School, Ross & Lawrie of Basketball BC for introducing NBA to Strathcona. We are very grateful and excited that Strathcona was selected amongst and over other Greater Vancouver facilities considered. Success was a team effort, and included our point players: VSB partners, Harjinder Sandhu, Strathcona School Principal and Jessie Brown, Strathcona School Vice-Principal, Ron Suzuki and Harvey Eng of Strathcona Community Centre!
